"No. Before I went on Medicare my insurance covered it. Since it's a great preventative tool, you would think Medicare would cover it."

"If you haven't done so yet, call Dexcom and tell them you have Medicare and hence you'll be paying out-of-pocket for your CGM. They will probably quote you a price below MSRP. Good luck!"

"Did Medicare cover any of the cost of the G4 ever? It certainly didn't cover mine."

Transmitter Low Battery Message

Just got the low transmitter battery message on my G4. Medicare will not cover the cost of a new transmitter. The cheapest I can find in $620. Is there anywhere to get one at a lower cost?See More

"I usually get 3 weeks or so as well. I use Opsite Flexifix, swear by the stuff. It comes in a roll. I cut a strip for each side of the sensor/transmitter tape. It hasn't ever given out on me, and is virtually invisible - super thin."

"What kind of tape do you use? My main problem is they don't stick longer than about 3-5 days and start to work themselves out. I went to the local pharmacy, but all they could recommend is Johnson & Johnson First Aid tape. I got what I paid…"

"I am normally in the 20-25 day range. I get a lot of ??? and wacky readings. Sensor always works better for me in week 2 and 3. Love my Dex. If I ever have to go for a little while without it, I feel completely blind."

"I usually get 10-14 days before off readings and ???. Once I get a bunch of ???, I don't usually bother trying to restart it again."
